Gearing Up for Next Year

My little man decided to put himself back to bed this morning, so I thought it would be a good time to do a bit of updating on one of my TPT products.  Keeping my fingers crossed that it is just the dreary weather that we are having right now and not that he is getting sick.  :(

Last year my little owls LOVED playing a whole group version of Splat using our sight words.  If you would like to read more about how we played this game in the classroom, click here.  As I am trying to put together my list of musts for the beginning of the school year, I thought that using this much loved game with upper and lower case letters would be fantastic.  I want to introduce more games at the beginning of the year that will allow for natural progressions to occur over the course of the school year (ie letters to sight words.)  With all of this in mind, I took my Splattin' Bugs game and added upper and lower case letter cards and a recording page!  If you are interested in a fun game to get your owls hooked on learning, please stop by my TPT store and take a look at it.

Don't forget about my 100 follower giveaway!  Make sure to click here to check out the details and to leave your comments for a chance to win some great prizes.  Three winners will be picked next Saturday, June 29.

    1. Thanks for following! I'm beyond excited that I hit over 100 followers. I love having a blog and sharing my passion with others. Thanks for your concern as well. He seemed to perk up after his early morning nap. :)

  2. Hi Erin! I love the idea of playing this game at the beginning of the year. Any time I can teach something with a game, I'm all about it! I love making learning fun for my little ones. I'm about to head over and check it out on your TPT store. Thanks for the great idea! Also, congrats on 100+ followers!

    1. Thanks so much for stopping by! My kiddos last year just loved the idea of this game with sight words, so I just had to figure out how to bring it into the classroom right away at the beginning of the year for next year. :)
